AIA will not punish Show Low football

Posted: Tuesday, October 19, 2010 5:00 am | Updated: 3:50 pm, Tue Oct 19, 2010.

PHOENIX - Show Low High's football team cleared a major hurdle off the field the same week it attempts to clear its biggest obstacle on the field. The Arizona Interscholastic Association's executive board on Monday voted unanimously to accept Show Low's own disciplinary actions involving a school board member's communication with the father of Blue Ridge High senior Jordan Morgan. The school faces no further disciplinary action.

    I'm not sure "cleared" is a great word. Here is the quote from the AZ Republic: "The Arizona Interscholastic Association's executive board accepted Show Low's violation report and praised the school for its corrective actions.
    Show Low's school board president received a letter of reprimand for contacting former Chandler Valley Christian coach Bill Morgan to see if he could help the Morgans. Morgan resigned from Valley Christian and his son wound up transferring to Lakeside Blue Ridge.
    Show Low didn't receive a violation because of its corrective actions. "

    This article made me sick! The Show Low High admin is so corrupt and disgusting. First the school board president tried to recruit the young man to play for Show Low. Don't kid yourself by thinking this was some act of kindness. LIES! He knew EXACTLY what he was doing or he wouldn't have made such LAVISH offers to the Morgan family. Show Low AIA board member brought about false accuastions that were made that a Blue Ridge coach actually tried to recruit Morgan. All the while making life miserable for the Blue Ridge coach (again all this was brought on by false accusations). This gave Show Low time to take "corrective actions" while an investigation was being done on Blue Ridge and not on who should have been investigated...SHOW LOW!! Obviously "corrective actions" means a very, VERY light slap on the wrist (a letter of reprimand, really??). People should be getting fired over this. Recruiting, false accusations, covering up their lies, and then releasing a ridiculous article like this stating how exemplary Show Low is. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!? THIS IS DOWN RIGHT SICK AND CORRUPT. Worst of all...most of these awful people on Show Low Admin and AIA board are so called "Mormons." Hmmm, they must have missed the sunday school lessons about honesty and integrity. The devil is just glowing with happiness at how devious and corrupt this little town is becoming and we have the Show Low School Board President and AIA to thank for this!

    To make things WORSE after ALL the lies and misery Show Low admin has tried to bring down on Blue Ride.... the Show Low football Coach Ricedorff verbally attacked a Blue Ridge football player AFTER the Blue Ridge vs. Show Low game last night and elbowed a Blue Ridge assistant coach in the face. Class act Ricedorff....class act! Ricedorff NEVER should have been hired in the first place and he continues to remind us of the at bad decision. You do NOT attack an opposing player after the game. Not only is that bad sportsmanship but a bad role model for all the SL football players. Ridiculous! Truly hope Show Low gets it right this time and gives punishment where punishment is needed and NOT just a "lettter of reprimand."
